Students at Cannon County High School have a greater selection of books to choose from following a visit to the school from Congressman Diane Black Tuesday (Aug. 20).
Black visited CCHS for the purpose of donating books from the Library of Congress, which is the largest and one of the greatest of what may be considered national libr-aries. It contains some 18 million books, 2.5 million recordings, 12 million photographs, 4.5 million maps and more than 54 million manuscripts.
Black visited with Cannon County Director of Schools Barbara Parker, CCHS Principal Mike Jones, assistant principal Kay Barker, Freddie Curtis, U.S. government teacher, and senior Rebekah Faulkner during her 30-plus minute stop.
Congressman Black said she enjoys donating books to schools from the Library of Congress as much as the librarians do receiving them. She takes full advantage of a program that enables members of Congress to select various books for such donations.
